Air Rifle Taster Session

The BSA Scorpion Air Rifle
On Sunday 01 June 2014, four cadets travelled to 492 (Solihull) Squadron for their first ever taster session on the BSA Scorpion Air Rifle.

Cadets had the opportunity to look at how the range was set up within the squadron building followed by a thorough introduction to the weapon before being allowed to try it out on the 5.5m indoor range. Firstly firing a grouping shot to test their position before moving on to a friendly competition between themselves and then against several cadets from the host squadron! Cadets commented on how much they enjoyed the session and how useful it was to put into practice the marksmanship principles.
